Why work with us?

Edge Hill University is a major provider of higher education for a diverse student body, including mature students, first generation students, students from low income families and students from low participation neighbourhoods.

We also have an excellent reputation for our teaching and are proud to be invested in providing the best possible student experience. Our aim is to open new doors and provide new opportunities to all our students.


We apply real world knowledge and research to our teaching. We aim to educate our students to know what employers are looking for in competitive job markets. Our approach is to help students to discover their strengths and skills, understanding how to showcase these in their future career path. Aligning with the values of our university, we aim to champion widening participation with “Opportunity for All” at the heart of our employability mission.
